the band-aid. eat our peas. >> reporter: of course, taxes remains the big sticking point. the president, though, insisting that nothing would change before 2013 so it would not happen during a difficult economic environment, but house speaker john boehner saying that there's no reason to raise taxes in order to control spending. he believes the best way to get revenue is by improving the overall economy by creating jobs. he says he is willing to get a deal done with democrats and the white house, but, in his words, it takes two to tango and they are not there yet. >> dan lothian at the white house, thanks. >>> the debt crisis overseas sending a chill through wall street this morning. less than half hour before the opening bell, u.s. stocks may be headed for another rough day. ali velshi is joining us live from new york. ali, what does it mean? >> well, you know, first of all, futures seem to be leveling out a little bit, kyra. a couple of things going on here. one as dan was just saying, we just heard from the treasury secretary who is making a speech and he says he is expecting a deal
, carmageddon is what they're calling it. now, it might not sound like a big deal to you that a freeway is shut down, but this is not just any freeway. we will take you there for what is sure to be an interesting weekend in l.a. >>> also, an ipad 2 for $69. sears was offering that deal yesterday. today, they're offering an apology. the big mistake that had people thinking they had gotten the bargain of the year. >>> but let's now turn to the 405 freeway. the infamous 405 in los angeles. it is shut down this weekend. and you might be thinking, if you're not familiar with the area, big deal, freeway's shut down for construction. but think, folks, what if you are in new york and they shut down the brooklyn queens expressway? what if you're in chicago and they shut down the dan ryan? what if you're in atlanta, they shut down 75/85. you're in the bay area and they shut down highway 80 over the bay bridge? that's what we're talking about. this is how important 405 is. 500,000 drivers go on to the 405 every single weekend, but this weekend,s is not an option. the construction work is supposed to be do
their arguments outside rather than keeping them inside the room. the president wanted the big deal, john boehner it seemed wanted the big deal, and it's very clear that that is not likely to happen. so at this point the president had his press conference yesterday. he said, you know, i'm the grownup in the room here. we each need to give a little on something. he said, by the way, if we don't agree, guess who will sufficiensufficiener? the american people. >> you mentioned spooking the american people. i saw a poll today and i'm sure the white house saw it as well. in it it showed americans are more worried about raising the debt limit than they are about the government defaulting. could the statement by the president be, i don't know, a calculated effort to warn the country, talking about millions who don't get the checks about the severity of this government default? >> absolutely. i think the president is now starting to say, okay, and we're getting a little into the blame game now. okay, if the government defaults, you're not going to get your social security checks and your veterans benefit

is your chance to talk back on one of the big stories of the day. today's question is what would you tell congress to do about the debt limit? carol costello is joining us from washington. carol, i bet you're going to get a lot of folks weighing in on this one. >> i urge all of our facebook friends to keep it clean. that's my only request today. what is happening in washington is political gamesmanship at its worse. it's ugly and more than a little scary. the united states has never gone into default because past administrations and lawmakers have compromised. cnn contributor john avalon says lawmakers have raised the debt ceiling 77 times including 8 tooils times under ronald reagan and back in the day politicians weren't quite so macho. many insist on standing on principal even though most americans stand on the side of good old fashioned compromise. two-thirds of americans want the president and republicans to compromise, rather than stand up for their beliefs to get things done. wow. a break from part is anship. perhaps the happiest outcome of the president's speech last night was whe
. >>> people love their cars, traffic jams are part of the daily life, but this weekend, the closure of a big chunk of the 405 freeway is causing added worry. it is shut down for a construction project. and residents are so worried they're calling this carmageddon, but so far, we're not seeing it. no gridlock. let's bring in cnn's kareen wynter who is above the 405 there. and we know ten miles of the 405 is closed, so no traffic there. what about everywhere else? >> reporter: everywhere else from our viewpoint all looks good. now a short time ago, we checked out some of the alternate routes officials were encouraging the public to take. it's really, really quiet right now. we saw a lot more people on bikes, pedestrians, people walking their dogs than we did people in their cars. one of our photographers -- our producers, rather, michael kerry took a picture on the other side of town near the pacific coast highway. usually an extremely congested area this time of year really any time. and that was another alternate route that officials were encouraging people to take if they were headed to l.a
. is that realistic at this point. >> well, in terms of getting that big agreement, it looks highly unlikely at this point, but certainly as you pointed out, the president joking that his campaign was built on hope and change. it will be interesting to see if that hope will also win out in this debate. but, look, what the president is pushing for still is the biggest deal possible. he acknowledged, though, that it's hard to do that, but nonetheless, he has been telling congressional lawmakers during negotiations all this week that if they can't get the biggest deal possible to attack the problem of the debt and the deficit over the long term, then they should still be ambitious. >> we are obviously running out of time, and so what i have said to the members of congress is that, you need over the next 24 to 36 hours to give me some sense of what your plan is to get the debt ceiling raised through whatever mechanisms they can think about and show me a plan in terms of what you're doing for deficit and debt reduction. if they show me a serious plan, i am ready to move. even if it requires some

as 40,000 dead in the last four years. this shocking reality has made it's way on the big screen with a new genre called narco movies. in this movie called "high-powered people," a drug lord and an associate discuss alliances. the violence in their movies pales in comparison to reality. >> translator: we're not even close to reflecting reality. can you call our movies soft because we don't show as much blood and killings. we just try to give people what they want. >> reporter: the english translation of the movie titles are very revealing. the bough so the film makers say they make sure the screen plays don't rub any of the cartels the wrong way, and it's a kinds of self censorship that keeps them safe. >> translator: we deal with these issues in the best way possible. we're not afraid they will come after us because we behave. we do things the best we can and so far we have not been threatened by anybody. >> rafael romo joins me now. is anybody concerned about the glorification of what the cartels are all about? >> there is great concern. the movies are not yet mainstream in mex
